The Las Vegas Raiders have lost yet another piece, as they released first round cornerback Damon Arnette on Monday. The release of Arnette comes after multiple incidents, including a hit-and-run, a confrontation in which he spat on a hotel employee and a video in which he flashes guns and threatens to kill somebody.
The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

It has been exactly one month since Jon Gruden’s emails were leaked. Since that day, Gruden has left the organization after making homophobic and sexist remarks. Henry Ruggs III is awaiting sentencing after driving his car 156 miles per hour drunk, killing a woman and her dog. Now, another first round pick, Arnette, is also gone.
With this release, all five of the Raiders’ 2020 NFL Draft Picks (on day one and day two) are no longer with the team. The Raiders’ next matchup is with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.
